A Beautiful Life

by William M. Golden, 1918

  1. Each day Iíll do a golden deed,
    By helping those who are in need;
    My life on earth is but a span,
    And so Iíll do the best I can.

    • Refrain:
      Lifeís evening sun is sinking low,
      A few more days, and I must go
      To meet the deeds that I have done,
      Where there will be no setting sun.

  2. To be a child of God each day,
    My light must shine along the way;
    Iíll sing His praise while ages roll,
    And strive to help some troubled soul.

    • Refrain:
      Lifeís evening sun is sinking low,
      A few more days, and I must go
      To meet the deeds that I have done,
      Where there will be no setting sun.

  3. The only life that will endure,
    Is one thatís kind and good and pure;
    And so for God Iíll take my stand,
    Each day Iíll lend a helping hand.

    • Refrain:
      Lifeís evening sun is sinking low,
      A few more days, and I must go
      To meet the deeds that I have done,
      Where there will be no setting sun.

  4. Iíll help someone in time of need,
    And journey on with rapid speed;
    Iíll help the sick and poor and weak,
    And words of kindness to them speak.

    • Refrain:
      Lifeís evening sun is sinking low,
      A few more days, and I must go
      To meet the deeds that I have done,
      Where there will be no setting sun.

  5. While going down lifeís weary road,
    Iíll try to lift some travílerís load;
    Iíll try to turn the night to day,
    Make flowers bloom along the way.

    • Refrain:
      Lifeís evening sun is sinking low,
      A few more days, and I must go
      To meet the deeds that I have done,
      Where there will be no setting sun.
